Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi win Nobel Peace Prize
un article par Education International

Education International (EI) is celebrating the international recognition of Kailash Satyarthi, a close friend of EI’s and a tireless advocate for children’s rights, and Malala Yousafzai, probably the world’s best-known advocate for the right of every child to access quality education.

“I would like to congratulate both Malala and Kailash for receiving this extraordinary honour,” expressed EI General Secretary Fred van Leeuwen. “Their tireless efforts and dedication towards promoting quality education for all children, often in the face of threats from those who oppose basic human rights, are being celebrated by all of us at Education International.”

Malala Yousafzai, 17, from Mingora, Pakistan is the youngest recipient of the award. On Oct 9, 2012, after becoming an advocate for girls’ education, she was shot by a Taliban gunman on her way home from school. She survived, and has become an international ambassador for education. She was previously nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2013.

Despite reoccurring Taliban threats, Yousafzai remains a staunch advocate for the power of education. On October 10, 2013, in acknowledgement of her work, the European Parliament awarded Yousafzai the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.

Kailash Satyarthi, 60, is the founder of the Global March Against Child Labour, Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), the South Asian Coalition on Child Servitude (SACCS), and Rugmark. He is based in New Delhi, India, but his work extends to Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Satyarthi also sits on the board of the Global Campaign for Education (GCE).

At the age of 26 Satyarthi gave up his career as an electrical engineer and dedicated his life to helping the millions of children in India who were forced into slavery. His original idea was daring: he decided to mount raids on factories — factories frequently manned by armed guards — where children, and often entire families, were held captive as bonded workers.

After successfully freeing and rehabilitating thousands of children, he went on to create a global movement against child labour. Today, Kailash continues to lead the Global March Against Child Labour, a conglomeration of 2000 social-purpose organisations and trade unions in 140 countries.

Letter from Mohatma Gandhi to Maria Montessori.

To Madame Montessori

Even as you, out of your love for children, are endeavoring to teach children, through your numerous institution, the best that can be brought out of them, even so, I hope that it will be possible not only for the children of the wealthy and the well-to-do, but for the children of paupers to receive training of this nature. You have very truly remarked that if we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have the struggle, we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which, consciously or unconsciously, the whole world is hungering.

Mohatma Gandhi, Young India, 19-11-''31
